Manchester United academy starlet Mason Greenwood has arguably been one of the most impressive break through stars this campaign.
The 18-year-old teenage sensation has started just 10 league games this season and has scored a remarkable 10 goals and provided one assist. In light of the youngster’s impressive run of form, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has addressed his forward’s chances of featuring further throughout the remainder of the season.
United are preparing to take-on domestic rivals Chelsea in the second of two FA Cup semi-final at Wembley tomorrow evening as the Reds hope to book themselves a place in the illustrious cup’s final on August 1.
Solskjaer’s side have two domestic games left, at least one FA Cup tie and another possible four Europa League games to go. The fixtures are continuing to come thick and fast even after a period of four weeks which will see United complete a staggering nine matches.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s Semi Final, United boss Solskjaer addressed concerns surrounding Greenwood and the possibility the youngster may need a rest, as quoted by Manchester Evening News: “He’s coped really well with the demands on him, we’ve managed him as well as we could he’s come back from lockdown flying sharpness is there he’s gained a few kilos and a lot of experience in his own abilities, so there are only two games left in the league hopefully two in FA Cup and three or four in Europa League, he’ll be fine, no chance of a burnout, he’s been excellent.”
Earlier on in the season, Solskjaer seemed wary of giving Greenwood too much time on the pitch and worked towards easing him in. Now he’s a player he can’t leave out of the team after quickly growing into the role and taking responsibility.
